Question about Sony KP-57HW40 57" Rear Projection Television
The t.v. started to flash green for a couple days, and all of a sudden it flashed green and turned off, cant adjust anything because it wont stay on long enough. It shuts off every minute or so, also smell smoke haha. Did our t.v. go out?
You can try the suggestion on the site I posted below. This site addresses a specific problem that tends to be fairly common in some Sony sets. Only try this if your sure that the problem your having is the same problem described in the site. Look at the picture of the screen on the site and see if that looks like your screen. The set on the site is red but it could be Green or Blue also. If you set won't stay on, you may have to turn the appropriate knob down slightly in order to get the set to stay on. Although he mentions this will fix a convergence problem, the fix described has nothing to do with convergence. The symptoms you are describing do not sound like a convergence issue. I am however a little concerned about the smell. Another thing is, after the set shuts off the Led will blink a code. For example it may flash 8 times then pause and repeat. You can Google this to find out more info on the problem. Many things can go wrong with TV's, I recommend you do as much research as you can to narrow it down. Good luck, here is the site.
